Learning English This Summer At SGI Couldn’t Be More Exciting

With thousands of tourists descending on the English capital this summer, many international students are choosing to come to London to learn English while enjoying the best of British culture. By enrolling on a language course at St George International, students can spend time after classes enjoying major events such as the Queen’s Jubilee and the Olympics.

While the school has a strong focus on learning and improving English language skills, it also firmly believes that it is important for students to relax and enjoy themselves as well. London offers much in the way of entertainment, and the school’s social organisers help students make the most of their stay in the exciting city. With lots going on in 2012, this summer is a great time to visit the UK capital.

In June people all across the UK will join in a huge celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee. UK citizens will get an extra two days holiday on 4 and 5 June to give them a chance to enjoy street parties and other events marking the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation. Elizabeth II has ruled England and the British Isles as well as being head of the Commonwealth since 1952 and remains a much-loved figure in British culture today.

The Jubilee offers students the perfect chance to get out on to the streets of London and practise their language skills with the locals. SGI’s social programme is designed to help students have a memorable time in London, make new friends and improve their skills in English.

SGI General Standard English Courses (including Advanced English Courses) can help students communicate more effectively in English by improving grammatical knowledge, language skills and confidence. All of St George International’s courses are accredited by the British Council.

General English courses are designed for students who wish to improve their ability to communicate in English while experiencing the sights and sounds of London. Prospective students can choose morning classes or ones that run all day. There is also a course combining a morning group class with afternoon one-to-one tuition.

The first unit, of the Forensic Science Diploma is comprised of the first 1-8 modules of the course and explores the science of crime scene investigation, also known as field forensics. The modules within Unit 1 examine the processing of the crime scene and the range of possible evidence available including, biological evidence, trace evidence, fingerprint evidence, ballistics evidence, evidence of arson and evidence of explosion.

The second unit contains 3 modules examining forensic pathology at the crime scene and forensic pathology at the mortuary before moving on to Forensic Anthropology which also spans work that takes place in both the mortuary and the laboratory.

The third and final unit of the Forensic Science Diploma focuses on forensic science that takes place in a controlled environment such as a laboratory. The remaining modules that make up Unit 3 examine forensic odontology, forensic entomology, forensic botany, forensic serology, DNA typing, forensic toxicology, forensic firearms identification, disputed documents examination and forensic vehicle examination.

The Forensic Science Level 4 Diploma is the latest course to be added into our ever popular Criminology and Forensics faculty. If you are you a fan of CSI and would like to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes or would like to progress in a related career, why not find out more about this enthralling new course.

Considering a Career change – Take a look at NCC Home Learning’s Brand New Personal Assistant Diploma!

It goes without saying that a Personal Assistant must possess excellent organisational skills!

Although the overall job purpose of the Personal Assistant is generally categorised as ‘to provide comprehensive support to senior management’, the practical role requires much more than impressive administrative skills. The scope of the role also requires strong personal skills and a firm grasp of business structure, requirements and procedures.

Personal Assistants are often the first point of contact, dealing with people both internal and external to the organisation, so it is essential that they make a good first impression. They also must possess an extensive knowledge of the organisation including the businesses aims and objectives and who its key personnel are.

There is no doubt that Personal Assistants are relied on heavily but when carried out successfully this can be a very satisfying and fulfilling job role.

The aim of the home study Personal Assistant Diploma is to provide an overview of the key areas of business understanding and personal skills that are required to work successfully in in the role of a Personal Assistant.

The course covers key subject areas in relation to the role of a Personal Assistant including understanding organisations, managing business information, legal and regulatory requirements and handling difficult situations to name just a few!

As the Personal Assistant Diploma can be completed fully by distance learning as one of the many NCC Home learning courses you can work towards a qualification from the comfort of your own home at a pace to suit you.

With this course you will receive 12 months personalised tutor support and on completion of the course you will receive your Diploma from National Awarding Body NCFE.

Evening language courses at SGI

Short days and frosty evenings can make the idea of getting through winter in London a bleak one. For those looking to spice up their evenings and minimise time on the sofa this winter, you might want to look at St George International evening courses. SGI language school offers a variety of foreign language evening courses, making learning a language that much more attainable for those who work.

When trying to balance learning a language with a full time job, finding a language school that fits in with your timetable can be half the challenge. St George International offers evening classes in German, French and Spanish and is very centrally located in London’s Oxford Circus.

Classes run from 18:30 to 20:30 during weeknights meaning they’re accessible for those working in Central London. Class size is kept to a maximum of 12 so that each student gets as much teacher attention as possible. Importantly, classes are taught by qualified native-speaker teachers so students have the benefit of learning conversational rather than just text book languages. Various levels are available for each course. Students can take an easy to follow online test to determine their level. Courses run for 10 weeks and prices vary from £185 to £195.

For those wishing to attend Spanish courses London can seem like a daunting place to start. Many people find it hard to fit learning a language in around the busy city lifestyle. St George International’s flexible approach to learning helps to combat this. You can attend classes at the school or opt for private tuition. Private tuition is offered at a variety of levels and there are Intensive and Super Intensive courses available. Businesses can take advantage of the in-company courses that SGI provides, both for small groups and individuals.

For many wishing to take French courses London is a great option. However, a great way to cement new found language skills is of course, to start speaking with native speakers. SGI’s partner schools in Montpellier, Nice, Paris and Vichy provide the amazing opportunity to study French in France. Most courses have a maximum class size of 15 and consist of 20 to 30 lessons a week.

Winter in London need not be dull – aspiring French, Spanish and German speakers can put their snowy evenings to good use with SGI’s evening language courses. The school’s central location and flexible options for learning make the whole process of learning a language that much more doable.

Language Students and School Develop Together

As the year draws to a close, it is time to start looking ahead and setting goals for 2012. If learning a new language or improving your skills in a certain language is something you know you need to do, don’t put it off any longer. Although you may already be aware of the benefits of learning a language, you probably also know that it requires time and dedication. This creates a particular dilemma for anyone who lives here in the UK and needs to learn English. Strong English skills are necessary for success here in the UK but for busy professionals, finding time for classes can be very difficult. Those who live in London and want to learn a foreign language also face a dilemma in that without classes, they might not have much exposure the language they want to learn. Fortunately, one particular language school is making learning convenient and enjoyable.

St George International has been helping students achieve their language goals for almost 40 years and the school continues to grow. They have many evening classes that are perfect for busy professionals and have recently added even more. It is no coincidence that as SGI is helping students to grow and develop, the school itself is also growing and developing.

SGI has an excellent selection of English as well as foreign language courses. Recent additions include courses such as Business English, Business English Writing, Academic English Writing and English exam preparation courses. If you want to learn French London is a wonderful place to learn and with the support of SGI’s helpful teachers, you will be speaking French in no time. The same is true for anyone wishing to learn Spanish in London. With SGI, you will get the support and attention you need to exceed your own expectations.

Learn English Faster With An Online Blog

Online learning is fast becoming the definitive way to learn. Virtual classrooms and online chats can be used as a way for students to communicate with each other outside of the real classroom and polish up their skills. Whether you love writing your own blog or reading others, blogging is a fun and informative way to continue learning after lessons are done. After all, what better way to pick up a language than through an interactive blog packed full of helpful tips and exercises?

Language schools, such as London based school St George International, use blogs to supplement their lessons and give students and prospective learners a daily dose of extra-curricular knowledge. St George has just revamped its hugely successful blog to help students out with their classes online.

Short daily articles are published on the school’s blog that cover up to the minute topics about London and current affairs. Through the articles students are encouraged to practice their English skills with free practice exercises, a focus on grammar or vocabulary in every post and a multimedia platform that includes video and podcasts. Using different media is a good way to improve listening skills as well as reading. There is also a focus on speaking with certain tasks requiring students to talk aloud in response to questions.

Using a blog for social interaction is another benefit of an online school community. Both students and teachers can leave comments in the forum to share views and information about what they are learning. Keeping informed about the school’s busy social calendar is also possible through posts made on the Student Life in London section of the blog.

The IELTS score is important to most students learning English and practicing your classroom skills online is bound to help. The St George blog is actually one of the best-known resources for information about how to improve your score. A series of posts from both teachers and other students about how to get better results in the IELTS speaking test has sparked off a vibrant dialogue. Indeed, since the discussion on IELTS began on the school’s blog there have been over 8,000 hits a month to the site.

St George International is a small language school based in the Central London district of Marylebone. It has been open since 1962 and offers a diverse range of English language and Foreign Languages courses. The school also offers residential courses on which students get the chance to stay in the small historic city of Winchester.

With the help of the St George online blog you can now learn faster. Taking an English course in London, the UK capital, is always a popular choice but for an Intensive French course London or Paris are great options. And if you want to take German lessons London is home to plenty of German speakers with whom to practise.

Those responsible for developing and maintaining the business’s food safety procedures, based on HACCP principles, must have received adequate training”.

“The requirements for training should be seen in the context of the nature and size of the business. There is no legal requirement to attend a formal training course or get a qualification, although many businesses may want their staff to do so. The necessary skills may also be obtained in other ways, such as through on-the-job training, self-study or relevant prior experience. The operator of the food business is responsible for ensuring this happens”.

New pricing also provides more options for a range of budgets; students can have private lessons with one or two friends or colleagues and a teacher, with prices starting from £11 plus VAT each an hour. One-to-one private lessons start at just £28 plus VAT an hour.

It is not only the lessons that are designed to fit around the learners. SGI’s main school is located in Fitzrovia, central London. The school is well equipped with the latest range of learning tools. But for anything from Russian to French courses London is not the only location students can choose. SGI has a 2,000-strong team of highly qualified teachers based around the UK, offering classes both in the daytime and the evening. Fancy getting away from it all? Study in Nice, Barcelona or Berlin with SGI’s partner schools to learn a language in the native country.

Choosing a Home Learning Company

NCC Home learning commenced delivery to its first learners in May 2006 and has been built on a pedigree of delivery with Colleges of Further Education for over thirteen years and to hundreds of thousands of successful learners.

Over recent years many new home learning organisations have emerged and tempt interested learners with a variety of offers and describe and present their business extremely well. On the flip side, some may have an exciting, interesting and a visually appealing website but it would appear little substance.

Prospective learners could save themselves heartache and money by making a few checks before signing up, including: Does the home learning website have an appropriate business address and can you establish how long they have been providing education? Can they be found on independent review sites with testimonials (good and bad) from learners who they have supported? Do they offer full Awarding Body accreditation with their courses if this is important to the learner? Is their fee policy transparent, or does the learner have to pay for additional items such as reference materials, accreditation etc? Is their a cooling off period?

Many organisations also offer a ‘free learner goody bay’ including additional items such as a pen, note pad, highlighter pens, bag to keep course work in etc. These items are inevitably a cost to the provider and must be factored into the overall cost of the course – ask if a discount can be offered if the ‘free goody bag’ is not required.

The most important aspect of all though is to conduct thorough research as impulsive purchases may not always suit the learner’s needs fully. Many home learning companies offer similar courses and at wildly differing prices. Once a learner has decided upon a course subject area, an appropriate search in Google, or other search engines, will throw up many organisations offering a solution. It is recommended that learner’s contact a number of organisations and satisfy themselves that they have sufficient information, before committing to make a purchase.

NCC Home learning offers learners a professional solution with Awarding Body accreditation included within the course price for over 90% of the course offered. We have approximately 250 courses available, many of which are targeted at improving employability skills such as our Teaching Assistant Diploma, Distance Learning A Levels, and Computerised Book Keeping etc.

Tony Smith, Managing Director at NCC Home Learning, said: “Learners should consider as many education development options as possible before making a decision which could ultimately change their career options.”

He also stated that: “Learners should undertake appropriate research and if not totally satisfied, take a step back before making a purchasing decision and only commit when they know that they have found the right course, and that they know that they can commit the time necessary to achieve their goal.”
